This is a proud distinction for one
fiaaAcial institution to have, and
well for the patriotic impul-
by weather conditions the
over. This puzzlement has
increasing for thirty-three
months or thereabouts, since the out-
bjeak of the European war, in fact.
Some venture the opinion that the
war operations are affecting the
weather conditions, while others are
just as positive that cannon fire has
nothing to do with the situation.
Those holding to the first theory
argue that if rainy, stormy weather
followed months after explosions of
the volcanoes of Mt. Pele, Mt. Kat-
mai and Krakatoa, the thirty-three
months of almost continuous cannon-
ading in Mesopotamia, Palestine,
Turkey, Russia^the Balkans, Austria
and France mult have the same con-
sequences as that ascribed to the vol-
caoes — the freeing of clouds of
dust-parti<-les to be carried into the
upper air currents and disarranging
thenr as well as the lower atmos-
phere. If they are right, then the
war operations by creating freak
weather are responsible for the bad
crop conditions all over the world.
For some days recently the skies of
lower Michigan were darkened and
the sun shone with a sickly glare
through the rifts. Some have blamed
forest fires in Wexford, Missaukee,
Iron and Gogotyc counties for this
condition, recalling the palls of
smoke which for days overhung the
Michigan peninsula during the forest
fire periods of 1871 and 1881. This
explanation, if true, would bolster up
the theories of those who think the
European war is wrecking the world s
weather and crops.
Of two schools of thought in the
United States weather bureau one
has repudiated with scorn the idea
that cannon fire in Europe can af-
fect weather in America or any-
where else. But the layman, mind-
ftrt of the mistaken predictions of the
weathermen and fact that weathe-
prognostication is a wonderfully in-
exact science, goes right on specu-
lating on what effect an armistice
wauld have on the weather. — De-

CARD FROM MR. J01
I am profoundly grateful to the
friends who made the recent call up-
on me to become a candidate for
Councilman from the First Ward of
the city of Paris, as I am convinced
they were actuated by honest motives
in so doing.
After having given the matter care-
ful consideration and thought and
following consultations with friends
whose advice I know to be good, I
have concluded to accept the call and
become a candidate for the position.
In this I am moved by the prime
consideration of serving the city as
Councilman as a business man, and
to represent to the best of my abil-
ity, those who would have me as a
member of the City Council. I shall
strive to do right, to pass up "pea-
nut politics." and aim to make my
candidacy as decent and honorable as
my own business relations with the
people of Paris have been.

Ter still observes It. There really ap
pears to be no good reason for giv
cinnati. who has devoted his life to a
study of human ability and fitting
the right job to the right man, says:
"There is a new psychology of
work. One of its most inspiring
principles is that the man who makes
a failure on one job is likely to make
a success of the job of an opposing
type, assuming, of course, that he
fails in the face of real effort. This
is the significance of failure: It
points the way to an occupation
which means success. Failure to a
willing man is merely misplacement
on his job. Failure at one job is not
a calamity; it is an indication. Ev-
ery failure is a guldepost to success.
"Fortunately some employers are
beginning to understand this. When
a man fails in one job they shift him
to another of an opposite type. And
if the worker is not lazy or dishon-
est he usually succeeds. No foreman
should be allowed to discharge a
man. He should merely report to a
central office that the man Is not
successful on his particular kind of
work. In another department he may
break records. To fjre a man who
has failed at one job is poor business.
The shifting of failures means the
BUSINESS AS USUAL."
"Business As Usual" should be the
patriotic slogan of every citizen of
Paris and Bourbon county, for with a
continuation of the city's, county's.
State's and Nation's business in their
regular and accustomed channels, we
can pay our war costs and still hav^
plenty left over to aid our Allies.
The billions of dollars of money to
be expended in war preparations will
be put into circulation in our own
country, and this in itself will create
k new wealth for use in the world-
struggle for humanity and relief from
oppression and Germanism.
The one thing that might halt bus-
iness now is an unpatriotic psycholo-
gical feeling of panic and a false idea
of patriotic economy.
Patriotic economy means the elim-
ination of waste and extravagance
It means~the conservation of our food
products, our natural wealth, our
health, our energies, our labor, our
\ery lives. It means putting more
efficiency into everything we do so
that each unit of money, energy and
intelligence may accomplish the very
Patriotic economy does not mean
the lowering of America's standard
of living, which would make us less
efficient physically and mentally, na-

ditionary force to France has arrived
in England, accompanied by his staff.
He reported a pleasant trip, and
expressed the utmost astonishment
that the news of his departure had
been successfully suppressed.
"I thought 'he whole world knew
about my leaving the United States."
Pershing a*id his party were given
a tremendou I ovation.
"We are Had to be the standard
bearers of our country in the great
war of cizilization." Pershing said.
"To land cn British soil and re-
ceive such a welcome is very signi
flcant — and deeply appreciated.
"We expect soon to be playing our
part, and I hope it will be a very
Pershing and his staff worked hard
all the way across preparing plans
for their work in France.
Included in Pershing's party was
his staff and detachments of engi-
neers and nurses. Distinguished
British army and navy officers met
them here with the warmest wel-

HAS ENVIABLE REPUTATION
When a medicine is vouched for by
hundreds In a state like Kentucky
there can be no doubt ae to its merits
Kentuckiaui are not easily led to make
public statement! about anything. They
are inclined to test a remedy thorough-
ly before placing their O. K. on it
Therefore Teniae's originators are
proud to point to the hundreds of testi-
monials given voluntarily by people of
the Blue Grass State. Here are a few
of the statements:
EDWARDS- Mrs.- Belle Phillips: "I
suffered from nervousness nml loss
of appetite. Needed something to
build me up. Tanlac brought back
my appetite and gave me rest at
OLATOX-Mrs. Belle Daniel: "Was
troubled with my stomach for sev-
eral years and was all run down. 1
havfi__used three bottles of Tanlac
and am naw feeling much better. My
api>etlte has come back and I have
already gained 15 pounds."
CLEAT* >X— Mrs. Sue Bobbltt: "I suf-
fered from rheumatic pains, sick
stomach, headaches and nervousness,
hut since taking Tanlac my health In
general has improved. 1 think it is
a fine medicine."
CARLISLE— Mrs. Millie D. Laughlln:
"I was weak, nervous and restless
before I started taking Tanlac, but
now I have my strength back and am
able to do my own housework again."
MALT— Mrs. Mary L. Howell: "Head-
aches, backaches and nervousness,
caused by disordered stomach and
kidneys, uuderinlned me until I was
completely run down. Tanlac, how-
ever, has me on the road back to '
health and I exi>ect to be all right In
a short time."
PENICK-W. G. Mays: Food soured
on my stomach and_I suffered from
heartburn. I was weak and didn't
seem to have any ambition. Tan-
lac baa toned up my stomach and
strengthened me all around."
Tanlac has built up thousands of
people In this state. If you are run
down In health get it today, as it will
do the same for you.
Tanlac can now be bought here
from Varden & Son.

The fact that a large number of
women in the war 2one are rendering
valuable service as wireless operators,
has emphasized the fact that wireless
telegraphy is a vocation to which wo-
men can easily adapt themselves.
Miss Katherine Parkin, of San Rafel.
Cal.. recently received a first grade
radio operator's license from the
United States Government. She is
only fifteen years old, and in her
third year of high school. Miss Gra-
nelia Parker, of Florida, is the first
woman to act as universal operator.
She is in charge of the radio set of
the Clyde liner Mohawk. When the
Nary Department recently Issued its
country-wide call for wireless opera-
tors who would be available in time
of war, a large number of women
answered, among them social leaders
in several cities. Wireless operating
was an important branch of the work
of the Women's Preparedness Camps
during the past summer and a num-
ber of competent operators are avail-
able as a result.

A MAN AND HIS WIFE
GERMAN SPY WAS GIVEN A WEL-
Notwithsanding the fact that
Glasgow, K7., is far inland and con-
sidered a remote little city, it was re-
cently visited by a real German spy
who came there in the disguise of a
tramp singer. He gave his name as
Lewis, and said he was walking from
Louisville to the gulf coast on a
wager. Soon after arriving he met
some of the prominent musicians of
the town. Such a perfectly trained
voice did he possess that the Music
Club invited him to sing before -them
and he did. He was asked by some
of the ladies to change his tramp
clothes, but begged them to let him
wear the ones he had on, as he said
he was not allowed to change.
Recently Rev. L D. Knight, pas-
tor of the Baptist church, attended
the Baptist Convention in Birming-
ham, Ala., and while there learned
that the foreigner who captured
Glasgow by his wonderful voice was
in prison, charged with being a Ger-
man spy. Sewed in the lining of his
clothing were found papers and spec-
ifications of every bridge covering the
entire route of the L. & X. railroad,
and the Jackson highway.

the conclusion that the most flour-
ishing crop they have seen so far is
the weed crop, which has been grow-
ing much faster than anything else
during the past week or two.
Corn has been coming up very well,
although a few farmers have been
compelled to plant some over again In
low places and on the hillsides where
the recent rains have washed them
badly. Everybody on the farm has
been very busy, especially those who
have been engaged in setting out to-
bacco plants. A great deal of plow-
ing has been done between the show-
ers, which have been certainly nu-
merous. Gardens are showing up
well, and nearly every truck farmer
is seemingly contented with condi-i

the big shepherd dog belonging to
Mr. Harry Jeffars, the agent. "Ro-
ver" was no common canine, but n
dog of most excellent disposition,
one who made friends with all the
patrons of the line.
"Rover" was a character in dog-
dom, and was the especial favorite
and playmate of the daughter of the
Jeffars household, Miss Josephine Jef-
fars. "Rover" had more than a com-
mon cur's education, and for this rea-
son he was well-liked by everybody.
One unlucky day the dog was killed
by a policeman who thought he (the
dog, not the policeman) was suffering
from the rabies. There was gloom in
the Jeffars household, and many of
the patrons of the line noted the
canine's absence from his usual
haunts. A friend of the family, who
sympathized with them, indited the
following lines to the memory of
"Rover," which is doggone good dog-
gerel poetry, in the style of the late
lamented Col. W. J. Lampton:

The United States has entered this
war with a thrilling and convincing
statement of her motives. 1 England
and France have acclaimed us as an
ally whose purpose acknowledges
that their tremendous sacrifices dur-
ing the past three years of fighting
were made in a crusade for civiliza-
tion and against barbarism.
Never in our history has there been
a nobler call to national duty. It
brought us face to face with the debt
each one of us owes, not only to out-
country, but to civilization. But if
we are going to give substance to
President Wilson's Inspiring words,
every patriotic man, woman and
child in this country ought to do his
bit, and to do it in Tfief way in which
he or she may be the most efficient.
There are so many ways now to
help, that every one can find some-
thing to do — if he is willing to do
it. And in the doing, many of us
will acquire a conscious nationalism
which we have never felt before. We
will learn to look upon our flag not
as a mere decoration, but as a sa-
cred token of service.
There can be but one brand of loy-

THE HEW COTTON
In the Imperial Valley of Califor-
nia they are making fortunes raising
cotton this year — sudden dramatic
fortunes. Everything about the Im-
perial Valley seems to have the dra-
matic quality; its story would make
a good moving picture. In 1900 it
was a blistering desert where a buz-
zard could scarcely live. And then
the government harnessed the Colo-
rado River and the the desert was
veined with irrigating canals and
ploughed and planted, and for the
first time since the primordial floods
subsided a tint of green and growing
things spread over the valley.
Cotton arrived in 1906. It came in
the shape of a box of seed under tho
seat of a wagon driven by a Texas
homesteader. He asked why they
didn't raise cotton thereabouts, and
they said because it wouldn't grow.
And so being from Texas, which la
something like Missouri, he planted
his little store of cottonseed and it
came up and opened its snowy bolls
to the wonderment of all beholders.
Furthermore, the next year it came
up and bore again without another

The thorough manner in which the
National government is carrying out
its proposed plans to cut down all
unnecessary waste in every depart-
is demonstrated in an official
received Saturday by Postmas-
ter J. Walter Payne from the Post-
office Department, advising him to
notify patrons not to use two or more
stamps on letters when one stamp of
a larger denomination will suffice for
the same purpose.
The communication points out that
the waste incurred in materials used
in making stamps would be consider-
ably lessened if this plan were ad-
hered to all over the country.

Health of a nation at war or at
peace depends in a large measure
upon its food. A nation cannot
thrive and be healthy unless it has

Nearly half of the body building
food and 70 per cent, of the sus-
taining food on American tables is
derived from grain, according to the
Life Extension Institute. These
grains are to be the manufacturing

of food is as much of a traitorous
act as the destruction of arms and

Vaccination against typhoid and
smallpox are execellent preparedness
steps. It is estimated that within
the past ten years Germany has
saved enough men from smallpox to
offset her terrible losses at Verdun.
The death toll in this country from

than any likely war losses. Fewer
men were killed in the Civil War
on both sides than have died from ty-

term "phthislphobia." or fear of con-

aid to fatal results. Such a condi-

WELDING STEEL AND
A new alloy has been perfected, by
the use of which rubber can be sol-
idly welded to steel and other metals
with a joint of immense strength.
The alloy has a stronger affinity for
rubber than rubber has for itself —
that is. when a sheet of rubber is
welded between two sheets of metal
by the use of the alloy, and a strain
is applied to pull the sheets of metal
apart, the rubber will part in the
middle before it parts at either of tho
joints. This newly discovered alloy
is of great value in electrical con-
